Subject: FOB My Ass. Sounds Like a BOB Or Balcony To Me.
I'd like to know the person who had the hutzpah to call this a primo-positioned recording. Either that, or it was just a hand-held recorder that didn't have much oooumph. Probably the later since recording in those days was tough to do openly. It's not a bad little recording. Just sounds as if it has a bit of distance to it.
And actually, the dynamics get better throughout the show?

Subject: How Did I Miss This Show?
I was enrolled in the OSU law school and never knew this show was scheduled until the day afterwards! I must have been WAY too involved in my studies....Mershon is a very nice venue too, with decent acoustics. Columbus was never a great music town in the mid-70's. Even the Agora Club had been intermittantly shutting down for all sorts of reasons at this time. There was a time when very few "name" bands ever seemd to come to Columbus in the mid to late 70's.

Subject: My first show
As previously mentioned, the venue change from St John's Arena to little Mershon and no seating made it very interesting, especially since I ended up third row, center. The hash was strong that night, and my memories a little blurred. I did take some pitures, which came out great! The sound quality of the recording is marginal, so I won't rate it very high, although it IS one of my personal all time favorite shows.

Subject: 5 Stars for great Mind Left Body Jam!
In Music Never Stopped around 4:00-5:09 they simultaneously play the Music Never Stopped Jam AND the Mind Left Body Jam!

I wish my seven-year old body had been there! I'd've been going out of my head! Or playing with bricks. Hard to say...

Subject: last minute venue switch
the band was booked to play a larger hall that night, but lack of ticket sales (how about that?) led to a switch to the relatively small mershon venue. seating was general admin as a result.

yeah, i was there and this show has been something of a grail for me. early deadbases had only a partial set list and i never encountered the boot in nearly 30 (sob) years of looking until i found it here the other day.

what can i say? it is far far better than i remembered. an outstanding st. st. - nfa jam with a moving, if subdued, wharf rat in between. crazy fingers is great, as is a cranked-up 'round & 'round.

peggy-o is maybe the best one i've heard. as for morning dew... well, the hall was probably as intimate and acoustically fine as they played in for quite some time. there was no crush o' folks in front of the stage and the band clearly dug the pretty laid back (for them) vibe. so what we got was a 'dew' for the ages, deep and serene; and the last time they ever did it for an encore.

an okay audience recording, with a few minutes of the soundboard spliced in, of an awesome show. enjoy & peace.

Subject: Seems like it alright
Some good stuff here! a 15 minute crazy fingers, a hoppin scarlet, and a St. St>NFA medley with wharf rat in the middle....interesting tonal tangents in the NFA...the dew is sweet, but not really a huge ending to it. always a curiosity for '76 though.
Oh, and good sound on this AUD, no joke!
I'm starting to get into this fall 76 tour. while they get a little too jammy and wayward at times earlier in the year, you can hear the gradual tightening which truly comes in fruition in 1977.....
